5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The best beer I have ever had. You can taste the flavor of the bourbon barrel. It is really good with steak, chicken and barbequed anything. The flavor is consistent and not overpowering. This is an excellent ale.

Gold with a white head. Nose is wood, alcohol, light vanilla, and malts. Easy palate, heavy alcohol, chewy malts, dough, and an easy finish.

I thought this was pretty damn good. Pours an oakish amber with a pretty foamy white head. Yeast, malt and whiskey in the aroma. Taste is sweet and warm. Nice ale with some malt and the perfect hint of bourbon. Alcohol percent is very well hidden. Very nice.

I like bourbon-barrel ales in general, and this is no exception. The Kentucky Ale which isnít barrel-aged is quite mainstream and boring. The barrel aging definitely kicks it up a notch, adding strong bourbon flavors, a hint of oaky vanilla, and a filling element to the beer. When it comes to relatively inexpensive craft beers, I like this one well enough. Would I say itís the best bourbon-barrel-aged beer on the market? No.

The smell of bourbon is the first thing that hits you as you pour this ale. Rather thin head. Copper tone. Taste is that of bourbon, with a bit of ale. Rather weak, watered down. Overall, a decent ale, but nothing to write about.

Amber pour, strong floral with oak and whiskey finish aroma. Sweet start with smokey bourbon finish. Plenty of complexity to enjoy sipping. Even has a subtle lingering Bourbon burn

I love this beer. Itís alcohol content is fairly high, and itís a little sweet (itís the whiskey taste) for some people, but itís very smooth, with the oak flavor of the bourbon coming through. Itís also not so carbonated, very smooth. Iíd call it a coffee haterís alternative to Guinness. :) The stout is hoppier, but this is a dessert beer.

Poured a little on the cold side with a small off-white head, no lace and a clear amber color. Aroma is malt Oak and a bit of a funk. Flavor is a bit similar to aRoma, a little sweet, carbonic tang is well matched and Oak comes through nice too. Good body. Nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 355ml. -at Scout Club Samobor. Golden/amber coloured, small off-white head, caramel and bourbon in the nose. Moderate malty, distinct bourbon and caramel with mild notes of alcohol. Interesting and quite likable but in other hand a bit too artificial bourbon presence. And of course a way too expensive...almost 10$!!!
